Fort Wayne, Indiana – Fort Wayne Ballet, Indiana’s longest-standing professional ballet company, announces its Fall Season! The Ballet’s 65th Season Fall single tickets are available beginning Wednesday, September 8th at 12:00 PM!

Fort Wayne Ballet’s 2021|2022 Season is filled with dynamic programming for the whole family, this season champions the themes that bring us together to celebrate the beauty and resiliency of the arts. Whether you prefer the traditional, the new, or the unexpected, we’ve got something for everyone.

The Fall Season will open with Diversions 21 on September 30 – October 2 at the Parkview Physicians Group ArtsLab with performances at 7pm nightly. This production is a fun mix of stand-alone pieces for all ages, encompassing both classical and contemporary works.

Taking the stage October 22 – 23 at the Arts United Center, is the haunting story of unrequited love between social classes and revenge from beyond the grave – Giselle. Experience this romantic tragedy that continues to inspire audiences worldwide and will surely leave you with a case of “the willies”.

This December the magic returns to the Arts United Center as Fort Wayne’s original, holiday classic, Fort Wayne Ballet’s The Nutcracker, comes to life – LIVE. Running from December 3 – December 12 with both evening and matinee performances available, we’re delighted to once again perform alongside live music exquisitely played by the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, for the December 3 – December 5 performances. This family favorite is sure to ignite wonder and holiday joy!
